Barack Obama, NAACP and Jay-Z Prove Blacks Are Not Homophobes

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke explains why blacks are cool with gay people tying the knot.

When he announced that he backs gay marriage, President Barack Obama killed the old stereotype that most African-Americans are homophobic. Today, more blacks than ever -- about 39 percent, according to poll by the Pew Research Center -- have no problem with people of the same gender getting hitched. That compares to just 26 percent in 2008. And now that the NAACP and Jay-Z have echoed Obama's sentiment, you'll see the number rise. The greatest rapper alive was on the money when he said prohibiting same-sex marriage is "no different than discriminating against blacks."

I've supported it for years. The real dilemma facing this country is that not enough people are getting married. The number of heterosexual single and divorced folks is outpacing the number of married couples. Too many straight men and women are married to their jobs and not focused on building families.

So I find it funny that the party of "family values" is so intent on stopping one group of people from forming families. Republicans such as presidential candidate Mitt Romney and radio blowhard Rush Limbaugh complain the government interferes too much in the lives of private citizens. But they want the government to dictate who you can and cannot marry. When it's an issue they oppose, they suddenly become communists.

They are a bunch of hypocrites.

Limbaugh, who accuses Obama of waging war on marriage, is the Genghis Khan of holy matrimony. He has gotten divorced three times. Then there's Romney. His religion was founded on a belief that a man should have multiple wives. But he goes around proclaiming that marriage is between one man and one woman.

I bet Mitt and Rush are a couple of kinky freaks too. They probably have a bunch of Latex suits, chains, and whips in their closets. I'm sure Rush loves watching girl-on-girl porn, yet he wants to stop girl-on-girl weddings.

How do the comments of a few individuals determine the mindset of an entire race? Are you implying that the entire Black American community is composed of a hive mentality unable to think as individuals? By the way, no such thing as "homophobic", it's disgust not fear.

Yeah, because as we all know, the safe political choice is to support gay marriage. You dummy.
